Menopause - The Musical @ Northern Festival Centre – Keith Michell Theatre


Newcastle audiences will see what millions of women have been laughing about for a decade when Menopause the Musical returns to the Hunter Region following sell-out shows here last year.

Set in a department store, four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. They quickly bond and make fun of their hot flushes, memory loss, night sweats, mood swings and more!

This joyful musical parody set to classic tunes from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles! Many of the audience members have come back time and time again to join in this musical but they’ve never seen it like this before. Inspired by a hot flush and a bottle of wine, playwright Jeanie Linders created Menopause The Musical® as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle, or have survived, ‘The Change’.

“Most women know intuitively that every other woman is experiencing memory loss, night sweats, or hot flushes but when they are in a theatre with hundreds of women – not just a few sympathetic friends – and all are laughing and shouting, ‘that’s me’, then they know what they are experiencing is normal.

They aren’t crazy. It becomes a sisterhood,” said Linders. Maybe the attraction to the show is the songs that everyone grew up with – The Great Pretender, Only You, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Heat Wave, I Will Survive and more – all sung with gusto and all with their new lyrics. Or maybe it is the realisation that there is a wonderful life waiting after ‘The Change.’
